Manchester United and Chelsea sealed Champions League places on a dramatic final day of the longest Premier League season.

United finished third after a tricky 2-0 win in a Champions League shootout with  Leicester while Chelsea ended in fourth spot  thanks to her two goals victory over wolves.

At the other end of the table, Bournemouth and  Watford dropped to the Championship while Aston Villa fans will likely celebrate all day after their team  got the draw they needed at West Ham.

Leicester, in fifth spot, will play in the Europa League next season where they will be joined by Tottenham, who drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace to leapfrog Wolves.

United, whose form has dipped in recent weeks after they pulled themselves back into contention for the Champions League, were locked at 0-0 at half-time at the King Power Stadium.

But they finally broke the deadlock in the 71st minute, when Bruno Fernandes scored from the penalty  spot and  Jesse Lingard scored late to seal the win.

Watford, who sacked Nigel Pearson earlier this month, started in disastrous fashion when they conceded a penalty in the opening minute at the Emirates. The match finally ended 3-2 in favour of Arsenal.

Bournemouth beat Everton 3-1 at Goodison Park but were still relegated as they  needed West Ham to beat Aston Villa to survive.

Liverpool beat Newcastle 3-1 to finish the season on 99 points and second-placed Manchester City finished the season with a flourish, thrashing Norwich 5-0 to reach 102 goals for the campaign.Elsewhere, Brighton beat Burnley 2-1 and Southampton beat Sheffield United 3-1.

Leicester’s Jamie Vardy won the Golden Boot with 23 goals.
